Review request for Plasma.


a sore point in the styling right now is the text in the systray area, so the keyboard layout indicator and the clock looking a bit out of place compared to the systray icon styling.
now, if we exclude doing an entire font in svg (and i really don't wan that ;) we can come to some approximations:
it uses a svg similar to the texture of the systray icons as text background, and a very light blur that looks more like an outline.
a theme can quite costumize it by changing the widgets/textbackground svg.
still to do, making the shadow more configurable in color and position.
This could go in Plasma::PaintUtils, but i would rather duplicate it here and in the clock for now, to avoid it being abused too easily (can get ugly and is a bit expensive to generate)
